Podcast 8.1 Predecessors of Satan from Mesopotamia


Published September 10, 2013


This series of the podcast investigates the origins, history and
functions of personified evil from ancient Judean and Christian culture
to modern, Western culture.  We begin with what you might call the pre-history
of Satan by exploring the building blocks of what ultimately became the
story of Satan within Judean (Jewish) and Christian circles.  The first
among the predecessors of Satan are monsters (who are also gods) found
within Mesopotamian mythology in the second and first millenia BCE. The so-called "combat myth" is a fundamental building block of Satan's story.
